SDSU’s Wallace, Sandford make their case at pro day

San Diego State hosted scouts from 12 NFL teams to watch 16 players work out on campus outdoors on FieldTurf, except for the broad and vertical jumps which were held indoors in the weight room. Two Aztecs, wide receiver Roberto Wallace and safety Nick Sandford, made a case for themselves on Friday with solid workouts.

Wallace (6-foot-3 7/8, 223 pounds ) ran a 4.53 (against wind) and 4.41 seconds (with wind) in the 40-yard dash, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical, 10-foot-3 broad jump, 4.12 short shuttle, 6.80 three-cone drill, and did 19 bench presses at 225 pounds. Wallace worked out after the pro day, as well, and displayed great athleticism but didn’t show very good hands in catching.

Sandford (6-1 3/8, 199) ran 4.62 (against the wind) and 4.56 (with the wind) 40s, had a 10-2 broad jump, 3.95 short shuttle, 6.74 three-cone drill, and did not bench press because of a pectoral injury. Sandford should be an outstanding special teams player in the NFL.
